Background. Myocardial fibrosis occurs in the subepicardial myocardium of the left ventricular posterior wall in patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The aim of this study was to clarify how these regional myocardial lesions might influence the focal cardiac movement using two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography and to investigate whether this new method is useful for the early detection of cardiac involvement in DMD patients.
